The Matter of the Gods: Religion and the Roman Empire - Transformation of the Classical Heritage

What did the Romans know about their gods? Why did they perform the rituals of their religion, and what motivated them to change those rituals? This book proposes simple answers: in contrast to ancient Christians, who had faith, Romans had knowledge, and their knowledge was empirical in orientation.
